Watercolors and Mixed Media

“I try to achieve a quality of calmness and serenity in my images while maintaining the freshness of watercolor.”

Watercolor has been my preferred medium for 20 years. I love the luminosity and
“happy accidents” that result from using transparent watercolors. It’s also a very
portable medium and a joy to use. My favorite subjects are landscapes and
seascapes (often painted outdoors), floral still lifes, and non-objective expressions
of color and line. Recently I have been experimenting with painting on textured
surfaces created with acrylic texture mediums. I also love to mix watercolor and
collage, by staining papers with watercolor and by painting over collaged paper.
